Asian Americans & Native Hawaiians & Pacific Islanders

Asian Americans and Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders (NHPIs) have been undercounted for decades, disadvantaging their families, communities, and neighborhoods. Roughly one in five Asian Americans live in hard-to-count census tracts, along with one third of NHPI. Some Asian American and NHPI communities are especially at risk of being missed. They have greater challenges in finding stable and affordable housing, have higher incidences of poverty and unemployment and lower educational attainment, and encounter greater language barriers than other subgroups within this broad race category.
